You know how great inventions seem so simple once someone has invented it? Here is a perfect example: Most modern homes, or renovated older ones, end up with recessed can lighting all over the place. It's cheap, it does the job and it's inoffensive. But it also has no style and looks like you cheaped out on the decor, or couldn't make a decision. On top of that, while it's inexpensive to install, taking them out has always required an electrician, a plaster guy, and then repainting.
Now, if you've been following along, you'll know about saving money on your electric bill by replacing incandescent bulbs with CFLs and the new LED bulbs just hitting shelves. Today, I'm going to tell you how swapping your old lights for LED Christmas lights can save you money three ways.
I know it's early yet to be thinking about holiday decorations, but the whole inspiration for this blog today is a program that Home Depot is only running for a limited time. From now until 11/14, you can trade-in old-style Christmas lights and get $3 off a string of new, energy efficient, LED lights.

Composting is great for helping your plants grow, preventing certain plant diseases and deterring some pests in your garden. Composting also helps prevent food scraps and yard waste from heading to the landfill, and saves you money on gardening products you would otherwise buy at the store.

Stepping into my kitchen is always fun, as I pass the pots of green filled with fragrant smells and beautiful leaves ready to be plucked and added to soups, stews, breads or whatever else I take a fancy to.
Fresh herbs in the kitchen are a delight, and they are actually pretty easy to grow. With Spring arriving, many of you out there are wanting to get some gardening done. The sad truth is that most people will start to garden, and then end up failing because they take on too much right off the bat.
An easy way to start gardening is to just begin by growing some indoor herbs. Here are some of my favorite herbs to grow, that are also very easy to grow.
1. Pineapple Sage. This easy-to-grow sage plant smells of heavenly pineapple. It's perfect for soups, stews and Italian dishes, but I'm particularly a fan of just smelling its beautiful aroma on a daily basis.
2. Cilantro. This plant is so hearty, that it's pretty near impossible to kill. So if you have a thumb that is nowhere near a shade of green, then this should make you happy. Cilantro is great for when you're wanting to add a little bit of oomph to Mexican night.
